-8 °C in Hamburg...wearing my Holubar down parka. Kind of N-3B-ish...
Glad you all like our Submariner, these sweaters, the Paratrooper and the RAF Comforts have been a total revelation, we got what we thought was a full year's supply delivered in November, they are now virtually sold out, next lot are due in a few weeks
First post of my recent "wearers"
Un-named Aero sample Work Coat in Battered Seal Horsehide made by Julie (Two Winters Wear) and 1943 Arnoff Shoe AN-J-4 (Light Period Restoration before I got it and essential new collar fitted myself, someone had shaved off all the pile from the collar before I got it!!)
It's been mine since the 1980s, comes out when the temperature drops enough below zero, so I've been wearing it this week!
The state of the Horsehide trim shows just how hard a life it's had yet the shearling still feels as strong as it must have felt on the day it was made, astonishing for an un-babied 75 year old jacket.
Good jacket to wear while climbing Ben Nevis.
It's just down the road too, but climbing up the stairs will do me these days!
Got that. My wife climbed that with me via the CMD route when she was. Few months pregnant our oldest.
B-3 down St. Ives today.
I Like the hat as well.
You can tell you're pleased to have that back Mikey
You pruned the mo slightly as well?
Yeah it’s really nice to be able to wear the B-3 and B-2 together again, and even better to have the A-10 gloves to go with them (they’re in the pocket). Yeah Smithy, I realised the ‘tache had gone beyond what I originally envisaged, so I cut it back a bit. Much happier with it now, although it’s a constant process of development and adjustment.
S.F.A.D. and a different black dog today.
That's absolutely beautiful! Man, the colors on that jacket are great!
Winter fun in very snowy weather, BR B-15C.
absolutely universal when it comes to weather - A2... today only minus 5 degre
Whoa!....... That looks very cold.
I’m thinking B-3 or Irvin weather but the B-10 looks good . I’m guessing you had something heavy on underneath.
Looks cold enough for your B-3, but that just goes to show the versatility of an A2 jacket.
Not cold, -3C ( 28F) but very snowy.
Yes, under the jacket I has sweater.
The short jacket was chosen because we play with my daughter over the snow on a sled, it is more convenient.
I usually wear another jackets in our climate in winter season and these jackets are much longer than flight jackets
I really like your jackets but your four legged buddies steal my heart. Great photo!
Splendid jacket Dmitry
